    Howdy Skeptics and other rationalist folks. My name is Miles and am a life long science fan, and nerd. I have become even more devoted to both comics and skepticism in the last few years. As i went deeper into the awesome world of indie comics, i found there was a major topic close to me that was hardly ever touched on - skepticism.
    The more i looked into other media, the more i noticed that skeptics were often treated poorly in pop media. The person who doubts there is a ghost - is often killed by that ghost. The person who doubts there is a god - ends up in hell, etc, etc. The closest thing i could find to a well represented Skeptic was X-files' Sully, and there are well document problems with her.
    I won't go into the story much at this time, but you can see the images and poem below. I would love if any of the rouge were fond of my idea, and wanted to contact me. As i would like to print a thank you to the SGU in the back of issue #1.
   The book is in production, we have the script finished, and are working on the pages as you read this! We will be kickstarting the book in the coming months, check us out!

Haha! Most people think my name is about my borderline alcoholism, but it's actually about that AND Dune.

What!? What is a guy named "Idaho" doing in the Dune universe?
*Looks it up
Ohhh, I never knew it was us way in the future! The name Idaho must be the only part of earth culture that survived!

:-\

Dune is chock full of old Earth stuff. What do you think the name Atreides means? They trace their ancestry all the way to Atreus. Yes, that Atreus, father of Agamemnon, of Greek mythology.

Anyway, yeah, that comic looks really cool.

Yeah, that's cool and all.
Tracing your ancestry to ancient Greece is cool. Sprinkling names in your sci-fi derived from ancient mythology is cool. Still puzzled why the name of a state known primarily for potatoes and racism gets in...
